Seeing Red on the Red Carpet: A Drunk Ed Anti-Academy Awards Benefit Show (LA)
March 4 / 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm PST$10
Drunk Education (the show formerly known as Drunk TED Talks and once described by NPR’s Morning Edition as “a real thing”) is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: writers/comics/artists make slideshows about stuff they’re really into, get drunk, and deliver them. Whether it’s the horniness of St. Augustine, the history of mansplaining relayed through the plot of Love, Actually, or the way teen girl organizers could have prevented the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, Drunk Ed has you covered.
This counter-Academy Awards benefit show for Time’s Up will balance humor, catharsis, and productive suggestions to talk about ways the entertainment industry marginalizes folks along gender, race, class lines, etc.—and how to stop it.
Featuring talks by Faith Choyce, Ann Friedman, Marlena Rodriguez, and Jenny Yang. Flyer by Matt Lubchansky. Hosted by Alana Hope Levinson
